United are upgrading the B767-300 used on Chicago-Amsterdam to a B777-200. IAD-AMS was recently reduced from 772 to 763 service, role reversal.

Regards

Mike

True but thank you for posting it HUYfan as I didn't realise that IAD-AMS was being downgaged.

Anyone know if UA are thinking of starting DUB? It's the only US legacy carrier that does not fly here. (Well NW doesn't either but their european network is tiny so I wouldn't expect them to start)

Doubtful especially now that EI will be codesharing with UA.

Well NW is larger than US in Europe and back in the late 80's early 90's was the largest US carrier to Ireland. So if one waits, things change.

The reason why US Airways flies to DUB and NW doesnt is because of their respective market segments.

There is a huge Irish diaspora population on the U.S. East Coast (NYC-PHL-DC area) which is the main target market for US Airways's Ireland bound flights where as in DTW/Midwest USA there isnt that much.

I thought it was a seasonal downgrade, and I like to think I stay on top of things. So much for that!  Wink

Shocking to see that they couldn't find a better use for a 777 though - unless, of course, it's a standard 772 (where they're pretty much relegated to Europe). Will the 777 remain on ORD-AMS indefinitely, or is it summer-only?

I don't know the numbers but I'm pretty sure Chicago has a good sized Irish base, don't they? Detroit, I'm not so sure but add up all of your midwestern cities and you've probably got a lot of traffic.

Where is the 777 coming from?

Is BRU-IAD still 777 or has it been downgraded to 767 to give AMS its 777?

MDW-area has a rather large Irish population..in fact, that Mayor  devil  is of Irish descent...

One of the things that I miss about Chicago is seeing Daley turn red during news conferences, I thought he was going to explode that time the loop lost power.

South Side Irish Parade was always a blast....

As far as I know the BRU- IAD T7 was taken from the AMS- IAD service. Brussels has a better yield than Amsterdam. Therefor I was surprised they upgrated AMS- ORD, because not so long ago AMS- ORD was flown only seasonal(763).

I really hope the T7 will be back on AMS- IAD. There's nothing special going on in AMS recently.

Thanks HUYfan. Question remains, why they increased cap. to ORD and decreased it to IAD. IAD is an overall more important gateway to Europe compared to O'Hare. Although I love the United Terminal in Chicago ?

The Irish population in Chicago are the second highest ethnic group to reside in Chicago behind Germany. I'm actually half-Chicagoan myself  Silly

ORD has much more connection potential than IAD.
